Le Cosi was recommended by a friend and we rolled in at about 2pm for lunch which was pretty late and reduced the available options.

What we did have was exceptional, a charcuterie platter that we couldn't finish, cod ceviche, a delicious terrine and best of all a provencale style veal casserole. They were very happy to throw a cheese pasta together for our son, which he gobbled down!

Having never knowingly eaten Corsican food before, this was a great introduction, and we'll need to give Corsica a try at some point if this is anything to go on.

The bill was slightly hefty but for a meal of this quality in St Germain, it was to be expected.

I was very impressed both by the food but also by the very accommodating (not to mention stunning) waitress who could have easily turned us away for arriving so late.

This restaurant was recommended to us by the staff in our hotel. We sat outside on a beautiful evening and enjoyed a wonderful meal. Our waiter was from Corsica and shared information about the culture and history of Corsica. The food was prepared with simple elegance. I had the pork chop and my husband had the seabass. Be sure to try a Corsican wine with dinner!

It's been around years, but the quality of that Corsican food is pretty great for an out-of-Corsica restaurant. Well done

We were recommended to go to this restaurant by a local, always a good start. We loved everything about it. We both had the tomato tart to start, followed by the lamb stew which is for 2 people. The lamb dish was THE most delicious thing I have ever eaten, well one of the most delicious anyway. Fabulous. The ambience in the restaurant was lovely. We were on our honeymoon and had eaten at far more expensive restaurants and ones with impressive views but Le Cosi is the one we remember and would love to go back to.

This restaurant was highly recommended by a local Parisian. When we arrived, we were pleased with the ambience, it seemed a charming little place even although a bit crowded. The tranquility of the evening was destroyed by the abusive tyrannical behavior of the manger "Olivier" towards "Eden" one of his waitstaff who he repeatedly verbally abused in front of the patrons. We were more than happy with Eden's service he was polite and attentive. At every opportunity Olivier was harassing, and shouting at this young waiter to the point that it made us very uncomfortable. Now for Olivier, for a start his appearance was dirty and disheveled, the fact that he appeared comfortable displaying his but crack all evening to all the guests was appalling.
He had exceptionally poor people skills not withstanding abhorrent bad manners, and a very unkempt appearance. This made the food which was average at best even less appetizing. Upon leaving the restaurant I asked him what his name was, to which he replied "Dejounier" obviously he felt compelled to lie about his name because all of the aforementioned behavior. Why anyone would hire this man as a manager is beyond my comprehension.
